Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: Speaking of '79...

Early 79 doesn't get a lot of respect, as some shows were terrible. But 1-8-79, 1-15-79, 2-3-79 and 2-17-79 are great shows (as were many others...Nassau, Shea). Jerry was playing like a madman and at warp speed, even on slower songs. That Jack Straw, Cassidy from 1/7 and Lazy from 2-17 are all great examples of his speed playing. The Scarlet Fires from 1/8 and 2/3 are some of my personal favorites.
